NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number : 05V277000 Recall Date : JUN 07, 2005
Component: TIRES:PRESSURE MONITORING AND REGULATING SYSTEMS
Potential Number Of Units Affected : 9
Summary:
 CERTAIN MOTOR HOMES FAIL TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 120, 'TIRE SELECTION AND RIMS FOR MOTOR VEHICLES OTHER THAN PASSENGER CARS.' THE FRONT AND REAR TIRE COLD TIRE INFLATION PRESSURES OF 125 PSI EXCEED THE MANUFACTURER'S RECOMMENDED MAXIMUM COLD INFLATION PRESSURE OF 120 PSI.

Remedy:
 OWNERS WILL BE PROVIDED WITH A REPLACEMENT FEDERAL TIRE LABEL WHICH REFLECTS THE CORRECTED COLD TIRE INFLATION PRESSURE. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON JUNE 22, 2005. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT COUNTRY COACH AT 1-800-547-8015.
